Fat Amy aka Rebel Wilson for the Craic??

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?

Probably hit Shifties for the over 50s.

If you weren’t playing GAA what would you be at?

I’d probably play golf. Don’t need to work out and loads of money. Just need to put the ball in the hole, how hard could it be?

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?

Cremartin. It’s the coldest, and most windy field about.

Which character in any film are you most like?

Probably Dory in Finding Nemo. I can be a bit “blonde” at times.

Any odd items in your kit bag?

A toothbrush and toothpaste lying in the bag somewhere.

What’s your preferred brand of gear?

Ah I’m not too picky on gear or boots I get a cheap pair… does the job. The cheapest I can get in Sports World.

Who’s the biggest joker in the teams you play for?

Biggest joker in my club is probably Eileen Roe when she comes to training.
County is probably Ciara McAnespie. She can be a bit of a one-hit wonder.

Which team mate has the best looking other half?

Hmmmmm, Seanna Mohan from my club in Truagh her man isn’t bad looking.

Who is the worst trainer?

Eileen Roe (McKenna) she didn’t come last Friday cause she had a Chinese ordered.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?

It’s Seanna Mohan’s pre match routine to spend most of her time in front of the mirror.

Who’s the best/worst person to share a room with on away trips?

The worse would defo be myself.  7am early mornings don’t go down well with the rest of the girls.
Well I only ever share a room with Eileen Roe which I seem to always get the short straw.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?

Reggie McKenna, she always seems have some food.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?

Best diet is probably the Courtneys from Donaghmone. Whatever they eat makes them run all day. I’d say there is a few with a bad diet, Laura McEneaney is fond of Arlene’s sweet bag.

Toughest opponent you have faced?

Sinead Goldrick

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?

Worst quote from a manager before the game:
“Right girls, tops off and into position.”
Best quote:
“The road to success runs up hill.”

Best manager you’ve ever played under?

Mickey Cuddy

Best ever performance?

Against Laois in the All Ireland Quarter final in 2013

One to forget?

Losing the All Ireland with Monaghan ladies.

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?

To be honest I always wanted to be a fairy, but football wise I looked up to Niamh Kindlon.

If there was a transfer market who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?

Probably take one of them Cork women up. Whatever water they drink down there must be special water. They are always flying fit.
Laura Doogan I’d transfer out. She is useless anyway.
